Siddhalakṣmī (सिद्धलक्ष्मी) or Siddhilakṣmī is the Goddess associated with Uttarāmnāya, according to Mukundarāja’s Saṃvartārthaprakāśa.—[...] Only the northern, western and upper āmnāyas are extensively functional amongst the Newars, in theory, like other Kaulas, they follow a system of six āmnāyas. This is largely based on the Parātantra. Thus, those listed in the Saṃvartārthaprakāśa by Mukundarāja, who was a Newar, agree with that source. The goddesses in the six āmnāyas are: [...] Mukundarāja adds two more goddesses related to the āmnāyas who are very important for the Newars. One is Siddhilakṣmī (sic. Siddhalakṣmī). She belongs to the Uttarāmnāya. The other is Ugracaṇḍā (= Maheśāsuramardinī / Durgā) who belongs to the Dakṣiṇāmnāya.
Shakta (शाक्त, śākta) or Shaktism (śāktism) represents a tradition of Hinduism where the Goddess (Devi) is revered and worshipped. Shakta literature includes a range of scriptures, including various Agamas and Tantras, although its roots may be traced back to the Vedas.
